Making a difference : the impact of Australia's indigenous education and training policy by Chris Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989, Australia embarked on a concerted effort to eliminate the inequalities between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the rest of Australia's population with respect to access to, participation in, and outcomes from all levels of education and training. All Australian governments (federal, state, and territory) adopted the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy, which is based on the principle of indigenous involvement in education decision making. Since its adoption, the new national policy has facilitated a visible shift in attitudes and actions on the part of indigenous and nonindigenous people alike, and technical and further education institutes' and universities' accommodation of indigenous students' needs and aspirations has improved significantly. For the first time, parity between indigenous and nonindigenous people is within sight in some sectors and some age groups. However, more remains to be done in relation to achieving the policy's goals regarding parity of educational outcomes between indigenous and nonindigenous peoples. The most critical issue for future improvements is to create conditions encouraging indigenous people to achieve appropriate outcomes in education and training. (The report contains 19 references. Appended is the text of the Aboriginal Education [Supplementary Assistance] Act of 1989.) (mn)
